11:47 am - Question on Immortality
Any help you can give me on this is much appreciated:

I'm reading this booklet called "What is Your Destiny" the United Church of God sent me...and i'm questioning some of what it's saying...so I want to ask for your opinion:

Basically, it says that our soul doesn't live on after we die, that that's some kind of superstition from ancient times...but that it too dies. It even quotes Ezekiel 18:4, 20 when saying that our soul is mortal rather than immortal. but it does say, however, that we can achieve immortality by seeking God and Jesus.

So here's the questions:
1) are they correct in their teachings?
2) if our soul doesn't live on, how can we possibly have immortal life?

Thanks!!

The passage in Ezekiel tells us that hell is, essentially, death to the soul. An eternal, painful death. But Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The only way to having an immortal soul.

But, having said that, that "church" (The United Church of God) is just another protestant church created by a man 10 years ago.
